Playzing is a portable entertainment device featuring a built-in oven.

Playzing demo photo


The Playzing has three main components:

  • Raspberry Pi portable gaming device
  • mini toaster oven
  • custom-built gamepad

The toaster is a commercial mini toaster oven which is modified to have a Raspberry Pi and screen attached to it. The gamepad is built to connect directly to the Raspberry Pi's digital input pins.

See the builder's manual for detailed instructions on how to build the entire system.

The code for launching games is tracked by this repository. The launcher can run on any operating system, but it is intended to run on Raspberry Pi Lite OS when being used with the standard Playzing device.



Clone this repository with PGFW using --recursive

git clone --recursive
cd playzing/

Start the launcher. The display can rotate by 90-degrees, but rotation is turned off by default. To turn it on, launch with rotation enabled on the command line or set rotate to yes in config.

./ --config ",display,rotated,yes"

Quit the launcher using Alt+F4 or by clicking the window close. Download the game iBitFit, which is the only game tested with the launcher so far, and start the launcher again.

cd games/
git clone
cd ..
./ --config ",display,rotated,yes"

iBitFit should launch when any key is pressed at the launcher screen.
